Orders or Judgments of the Probate and Family Court are often enforced by means of a Complaint for Contempt, although most problems with respect to compliance are worked through without a separate lawsuit. If legal action is necessary, the process for enforcing domestic relations orders in Massachusetts is quite simple and usually takes only a matter of a few weeks.

After a Complaint is filed, the Court issues a Contempt Summons which establishes the date of the hearing. The Summons may be served by delivering a copy of the Summons and Complaint to the defendant personally or by delivering and mailing the copies to the last known address.
